A few weekends ago I was in London to visit my brother
The weather was glorious and while this was a family weekend
I did manage to squeeze in a few shop visits
Mini bouquets on Dalston High street
I finally got to visit
a beautifully curated shop
as I made my way up Islington high street I popped in to
I didn't stay........
I love Ottolenghi,
but now that he is a "celebrity"
the place was rammed!
well, it was a saturday afternoon
bought some cookies to go and kept on moving
Next I popped in to
which was mostly full of beautiful faux flowers
Next was a trip to
where it seemed like a really good idea to part with a large chunk of cash for some beautiful products
Since I have been home Spring has well and truly landed
Every year it feels like a full body stretch after being curled in a ball for 5 long cold months
Such a feeling of hope and optimism
projects, small and large vying for space in my brain
and all seems possible
